Meta to open EU Elections Operations Center to combat AI content

27/02/2024 | Meta

In a blog article, Meta announced that it will launch an EU-specific Elections Operations Center to tackle AI-generated misinformation and political advertising ahead of the 2024 European parliament elections. The new centre will draw on the lessons learned from over 200 elections and will utilize the regulatory framework set out under the Digital Services Act (DSA) as well as the commitments in the EU Code of Practice on Disinformation to focus their teams, technologies, and investments for maximum impact. Meta has invested over $20 billion into safety and security since 2016 and has quadrupled the size of its global team working in this area to around 40,000 people, including 15,000 content reviewers in more than 70 languages. Additionally, Meta has the largest fact-checking network of any platform and is expanding it with three new partners in Bulgaria, France, and Slovakia.
